Debauchery, Misogyny and Sexual Harassment Tolerated at Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency

The Huffington Post published an article recently citing excerpts from an investigative report into the the Department of Justice’s ignorance of its zero tolerance sexual harassment policy.  

DOJ Lawyers' Demands Unheeded
Senior Trial Lawyer at DOJ Avoids Discipline for Groping Breasts and Buttocks of Female Colleagues on Grounds that Punishment “Would Unnecessarily Deprive The Government of His Litigating Services.”

Despite having a so-called “zero tolerance” policy for sexual misconduct, the investigative arm of DOJ failed to discipline its senior attorneys for egregious behavior ― including a male lawyer who secretly watched his colleagues while they pumped breast milk, one who stalked a woman co-worker, and another who physically groped his colleagues at an office happy hour, the report finds.

DOJ declined to suspend the latter man, who grabbed the breasts and buttocks of two female trial lawyers, because that “would unnecessarily deprive the government of [the senior official’s] litigating services,” the department official who made the decision told the Justice Department’s Inspector General.
Making a Mockery of Itself

All of these men later received awards for their good performance in the division, the report notes.

DEA Agents Once Frequented Drug Cartel-Funded Sex Parties

A couple of years ago, the office of the Inspector General also turned up sexual misconduct at the Drug Enforcement Administration, another department under the DOJ’s umbrella. That report detailed drug-cartel funded sex-parties with prostitutes attended by DEA agents, none of whom were fired. Some were even promoted. After the conduct came to light, however, the head of the DEA ultimately resigned, facing bipartisan criticism ― the misconduct went back to the years of former President George W. Bush.

The fact that many of the victims of sexual harassment employed by the DOJ are lawyers shows just how intractable and problematic the issue is.  Most female DOJ lawyers sweated through top level law schools and landed their dream job, only to be subjected to the same type of miscreants who frequent your local strip club. Sad. 

Every time the government, or any company for that matter, deals ineffectively with a sexual harassment claim, transgressors are emboldened – and victims are silenced.  This is true - even of strong-minded, well-educated, justice-seeking women such as employed within the DOJ.
